Slightly Stoopid, Atmosphere Are ‘Kickin’ Up Dust’

Targeting amphitheatres across the country, Slightly Stoopid teams with Atmosphere for a summer romp that also includes special guests The Budos Band, Grouch & Eligh and Tribal Seeds.
Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, Irvine, Calif.

It wouldn’t be summer without Slightly Stoopid hitting the touring superhighway.  A summer tradition, Slightly Stoopid is traveling in support of 2012’s Top Of The World.  The band recently released its live album/DVD – Slightly Stoopid & Friends: Live At Roberto’s TRI Studios – which documented the band’s adventure at Bob Weir’s Northern California recording wonderland.

Atmosphere’s fans can expect a generous dose of the group’s 2011 album, The Family Sign along with material from Slug and Ant’s seven studio albums and ten EPs.
